Vermont City Marathon

My most recent excuse for not knitting:

I had a whole post about the marathon and how it went, but Blogger ate it, and I just don't have the heart to rehash, so the high points:

Beautiful weather, great crowds, great running partners (see photo)

Droopy hands, I don't know why (again, see photo)

Marathon PR now minus one hour (yes, that's huge amount of time to take off, and I won't be able to take another hour off in one race again)

Have recovered enough to run tough hilly trail race 48 hours later.

Thinking on signing up for the Maine Women's Half in September and then I could sign up for the Hartford Marathon in October and do the the half as a training run....

Awesome! Sounds like you have a busy running schedule planned!
Thanks for stopping by my blog, had no email to write back to, so figured I'd comment back ;)
Hope all is well,

WOW! I have trouble walking up my stairs! Great job!
My BF runs. Has been working his way in to longer races. Did a 10K in RI earlier this month. We live 15 minutes from Hartford - let me know if you do that one. If I am not working I can go and root you on!
